Frequently Asked Questions

We're a 12-minute drive from Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw International Airport (SKB), the historic capital Basseterre, as well as a choice of two beaches. See our Location page for more details.

We offer 23 rooms and suites housed in cottages as well as the Great House—furnished in an English colonial style with plantation shutters, wicker and carved mahogany furniture, and local art and crafts.

Guided walks into the rain forest, as well as rugged volcano hikes can be arranged.  Explore the trails in Ottley's own rain  forest ravine. St. Kitts Scenic Railway offers a journey through beautiful areas of St Kitts—remember to order a packed lunch. Catamaran day charters to sister island Nevis, including snorkeling, Zipline rides, horseback  riding, scuba diving,  snorkeling, boat and car hire can be arranged locally. Golf includes an 18-hole championship course that is open at the Marriott on Frigate Bay, 20 minutes from Ottley's.

The inn offers complimentary daily shuttle service to a choice of two Caribbean beaches that are approximately 15 - 20 minutes away, the capital city of Basseterre, and to the golf course at the Marriott in Frigate Bay. The shuttle departs from Ottley's at 11 a.m., and picks up at 4:00-4:30pm. A picnic lunch can be ordered for those intending to spend the day by the sea or elsewhere on the island.

Check-in time is at 3 p.m. and check-out time is at 12 noon. However, the hotel will do what is possible to accommodate early arrivals or late check-outs.

Children are welcome year-round. Please contact the hotel for the best possible price arrangement and room type.  Children under 10 years are usually accommodated in the Royal Suite Cottage or Grand Villa only, and are asked to use the plunge pools at those accommodations as the main pool is for adults only. Baby sitting is available for $12 per hour.

Saint Kitts enjoys a pleasant average temperature of 79ºF (24ºC) year-round. The constant northeast trade winds keep the island cool throughout most of the year. The annual rainfall averages 55 inches with no official rainy season.

Ottley's is usually closed for the month of September, and sometimes late August and early October. Please contact us directly for exact dates.

We accept credit cards (MasterCard, Visa and Discover) as well as traveler's checks. We use the Eastern Caribbean (EC) dollar, but U.S. dollars are readily acceptable.

You can expect a usual casual resort-style dress code during the day. At dinnertime, dress code is "smart casual," meaning no shorts, jeans or t-shirts, and all men wearing collared shirts. Jacket and tie are never required. Evenings can be cool, so a light jacket or shawl is advisable, especially during winter months.

We would be happy to make car rental arrangements in advance of your travel. The car rental agencies often sell out in advance, especially during Christmas-New Years weeks and the St Kitts Music Festival in late June, so booking in advance is advisable. Email us if you’d like assistance with this. If you desire to rent a car, the agency requires a local license. One may be obtained for a fee with the presentation of a valid driver's license at the rental agency.

Each room is run on 110 volts of power, and blow dryers are provided in your guest room.

During the winter season, we do offer occasional onsite entertainment for our guests.

We offer a restaurant and bar, spring-fed swimming pool, spa, tennis court, croquet, rainforest trails,  shuttle service to two nearby beaches as well as downtown Basseterre and a nearby golf course.

Free wireless is available throughout the resort. There is one computer with Internet access available for guest use, located in the reception office. Guests may receive faxes at Ottley's fax number with a charge of $1 per page.
